MiM0SA Set to Release 'Future Trill Vol 2.' 8/12
Tigran Mimosa is a young voice echoing the generation of youth raised on early hip-hop and Grime. Born in Armenia and brought to Los Angeles at age three, he was thrown into a survivalist situation facing the harsh realities of a new country. Being an only child to a single mom as well as an immigrant produced an ambitious street kid. At the tender age of seventeen Tigran went north to the illustrious city of San Francisco. At a time when most kids were getting out of high school he was already knee deep in the epicenter of a vast and eclectic underground music scene. San Francisco, the legendary city of pioneers and innovators, had a quick yet sudden transformational effect - swept up in the chaos, MiM0SA was born.
Working with a myriad of synth lines and harmonic melodies, he carved out a niche by layering these with the signature 808 kick. Ultimately inspired by the west coast patriarch's of hip-hop from the Bay to LA, his musical creations had the unique voice that only a conglomerate of different influences could create. Embodying the newness of street youth and bay area underground culture, Mimosa immediately caught the ear of a small underground label called Muti Music. To follow was a prolific four EPs and an album between 2008 and 2010, which immediately earned him accolades as a live performer, chalking up early triumphs at the Lightning In A Bottle Festival, Red Rocks and Coachella.
In 2011, MiM0SA started his empire with his personal record label, False Idol Musik. Through this came the release of his second album, Sanctuary. His live gigs also traveled east during these few years, attracting thousands of fans and proving West Coast underground could not only resonate, but also was a party staple across the country. In 2012 his performance garnered him amongst the "top ten acts at Bonnaroo" from Spin magazine.
In 2013, MiM0SA came hard with evolution of his sound launching a free concept album entitled Future Trill Vol. 1. He conceptualized the idea of "future trill" as being an umbrella term for the genre of music and the diversified tracks within. Therefore his much-anticipated new album is aptly named Future Trill Vol. 2 and contains a diverse multiform compilation of tracks. Featured on the album is Houston rapper Bun B of UGK with whom MiM0SA admits having, "pursued with a determination to collaborate". Traveling to Texas with a suitcase of cash and a hard drive full of beats, he sought out and conquered. MiM0SA and the underground rapper went to work and in what would be described as luck or magic a potent musical union was formed. Within a thirty-minutes the epic single "Boss Shit" was recorded to be released this August 2014 on Future Trill Vol. 2.
